Toy Gift Guide

The Holiday Season is here and that means lots of shopping. Whether you are a traditional shopper and love to tackle the crowds or an online shopper we have some amazing Toy ideas for you to check out this Holiday Season. Each year I become more and more like my Nana and plan ahead to get Christmas Shopping done ahead of time. But I prefer the online method for more than one reason. I dislike the crowds and their rudeness and of course the prices in the store’s aren’t always the best. But I think that is the bargain shopper coming out of me, but no matter which way you prefer I wish you all of the best this holiday season.

So without further adieu I give you the Toy Gift Guide to help you navigate the stores both brick and mortar as well as online shopping.

Linkt Craft Kits

Linkt Craft Kits

Linkt® Craft Kits – the first-ever line of DIY chainmaille jewelry kits designed for kids 8 and up. This is a new product line that hit specialty toy stores in spring and has already won multiple industry awards. From Bubble Loops to Spinning Halos, these crafty kits are meant for girls as well as boys. Each kit, priced at $20, has everything needed to complete multiple projects in a single box. Make up to 20 pairs of earrings, or 5 necklaces or 5 bracelets—mixing and matching metal and silicone rings in a variety of colors so every single piece is different. Each Linkt kit offers crystal-clear instructions, and is supplemented by free step-by-step video tutorials on YouTube.

The results are stunning, real metal jewelry. Imagine the satisfaction a tween has looking at a piece of amazing jewelry and proudly saying, “I made this!”

We’re also finding that these kits are a great way for a parent/grandparent (or other adult) and tween to spend quality time together. Once the parent realizes the jewelry is professional-looking–not a macaroni necklace!–they want to hop in and make something, too.

Linkt is based on the historical craft of chainmaille (yes, like the medieval armor), and now, for the first time, it is accessible to tweens as young as 8. Toy company Neat-Oh! International partnered with internationally renowned jewelry artisan Rebeca Mojica to bring these kits to life.
